105 function is called twice on the same file.
106
107 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

126 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
127
128 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

148 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
149 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
150
151 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
153 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
154
155 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
156 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
157 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
158 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
159
160 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
161 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

174 get subarch.
175
176 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
178 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
179 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
180 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
181 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
182
183 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

193 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
194 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
195 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
196 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
197
198 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
199 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

201
202 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
203 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
204 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
205 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
206 as follows:
207 <etc-portage>
208 <file name="package.mask"/>
209 <file name="package.unmask">
210 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
211 </file>
212 <file name="package.use">
213 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
214 -java
215 </entry>
216 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
217 -ldap
218 </entry>
219 </file>
220 </etc-portage>
221
222
223 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
224 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
225 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
226 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
227 keys in the same order.
228
229 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
230 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
231 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
232 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
233
234 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
235 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
236 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
237 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
238 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
239 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
240
241 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
242 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
243 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
244 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
245
246 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
247 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
248 in add_network_interface.
249
250 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
251 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
252 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
253 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
254 prepare_chroot.
255
256 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

265 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
266
267 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
268 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
269 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
270 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
271
272 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
273 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
274 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
275 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
276 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
277 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
278 instead of the package atom.
279
280 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
281 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
282 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
283 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
284 __builtin__.file.

286 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
287 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
288 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
289 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
290 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in

294 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
295
296 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
297 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
298 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

300 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
301 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
302 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
303
304 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

311
312 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
313 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
314 be executable.
315
316 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
317 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
318 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
319
320 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
321 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
322 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
323

493 code.
494
495 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
496 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
497 adding the new value to the end of the file.
498

504 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
505 pythondoc.
506
507 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
508 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
509 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
510 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
511 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
512
513 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
514 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
515 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
516 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
517
518 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
519 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
520

529 sed to properly strip out junk.
530
531 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
532 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

541 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
542 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
543 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
544 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
545 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
546 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
547
548 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
549 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
550 when unpacking tarball.
551
552 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
553 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
554 filesystem_tools code.
555
556 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
557 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
558 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
559 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
560 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
561
562 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
563 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
564 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
565 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
566
567 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
568 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
569
570 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
571 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
572 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
573
574 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
575 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
576 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
577
578 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
579 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
580 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
581 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
582 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
583 the install profile if available.
584
585 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
586 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
587 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
588
589 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
590 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
591
592 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
593 took chroot out of grub_install command.
594
595 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
596 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
597 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
598 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
599 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
600 as it breaks the piping.
601
602 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
603 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
604
605 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
606 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
607 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
608 GLIInstallProfile.
609
610 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
611 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
612 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
613 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
614
615 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
616 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
617 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
618 to start/end sectors
619
620 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
621 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
622
623 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
624 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
625 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
626 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
627 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
628 for the generated script from spawn()
629
630 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
631 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
632 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
633 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
634 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
635
636 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
637 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
638
639 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
640 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
641
642 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
643 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
644 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
645
646 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
647 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
648
649 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
650 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
651
652 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
653 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
654 lang parameter to __init__()
655
656 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
657 updates to TODO list.
658
659 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
660 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
661 'emerge -p blah'
662
663 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
664 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
665 added quickpkg to TODO list
666
667 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
668 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
669 so that the installer can continue.
670
671 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
672 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
673 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
674 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
675
676 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
677 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
678 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
679
680 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
681 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
682 of adding them.
683
684 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
685 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
686
687 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
688 updated TODO list. (again)
689
690 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
691 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
692 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
693 fixed custom kernel config (again)
694
695 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
696 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
697 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
698
699 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
700 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
701 the partitions :P
702
703 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
704 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
705 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
706 blank.
707
708 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
709 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
710 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
711
712 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
713 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
714 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
715 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
716 mounting code.
717
718 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
719 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
720 sets it randomly.
721
722 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
724
725 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
726 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
727
728 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
729 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
730 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
731
732 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
733 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
734 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
735
736 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
737 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
738 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
739 be safe before third pass.
740
741 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
742 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
743 will test when i get back to school.
744 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
745 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
746
747 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
748 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
749 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
750 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
751 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
752
753 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
754 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
755
756 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
757 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
758
759 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
760 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
761 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
762
763 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
764 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
765 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
766 some may still have eluded me.
767
768 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
769 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
770 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
771
772 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
773 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
774
775 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
776 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
777 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
778 from GLIInstallProfile.
779
780 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
781 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
782
783 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
784 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
785 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
786
787 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
788 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
789 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
790
791 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
792 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
793 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
794
795 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
796 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
797 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
798
799 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
800 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
801 can be resized.
802
803 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
804 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
805 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
806
807 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
808 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
809 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
810
811 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
812 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
813 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
814 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
815 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
816
817 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
818
819 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
820 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
821 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
822
823 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
824
825 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
826 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
827 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
828 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
829 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
830 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
831 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
832
833 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
834
835 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
836 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
837 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
838 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
839 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
840 Added initial unit test code.
841
842 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
843
844 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
845 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
846 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
